Steel Cargo Discharge/ Loading Surveys

Claims involving steel cargoes are frequent and the result is substantial payments from P&I Clubs, therefore, ascertaining the pre-discharge condition of the cargo and accurate tally survey during discharge survey is a very important part of mitigating losses, avoiding false claims and getting everything right!

Pre-discharge/ discharge surveys are mostly required to be performed in cargoes of finished steel products (coils, wire rod in coils, plates and sheets, flats / square / angle bars, profiles, pipes / tubes and reinforcing bars) and also in unfinished steel products such as slabs and billets.
